Fighting for worker justice in the global economy.
Founded in 1987 as the U.S./Guatemala Labor Education Project, U.S. Labor Education in the Americas Project (USLEAP) advocates for fundamental changes to U.S. trade policies, demands corporate responsibility, denounces violence against trade unionists, and conducts worker justice campaigns in the banana, flower, and apparel sectors. USLEAP seeks a global economy in which all workers, abroad and in the U.S., are treated fairly, paid a living wage, and respected by corporations and governments. USLEAP became a program of the International Labor Rights Forum in December of 2013.
